A man in Pretoria has turned out to be the lucky winner of the 27 July PowerBall Plus draw, which saw him win a whopping R17 million. The lucky winner is a 47-year-old electrician in the capital city and already knows what he plans to do with some of his earnings. He’s getting married in December and plans on sparing no expense.

In addition, the new millionaire is also in the process of building and furnishing his dream home, but that’s not all he plans to do with his newfound fortune.

“A portion of the winnings will go towards our dream wedding and honeymoon, most probably at an exotic location, once the pandemic is over. I also plan on investing and buying shares in a telecommunications company with the balance of my winnings,” he said.

He used the QuickPick selection method and forked out R105 on the winning ticket, which was purchased at the Super Spar, Silver Oaks Crossing Centre, in Pretoria.

“A couple of days after the draw I decided to check my PowerBall Plus ticket. When I realised that I had matched all six numbers, I immediately checked on the National Lottery website to see how many other players had won the PowerBall Plus jackpot. To my surprise, there was only one lucky winner and at that very moment I knew I was that one lucky winner,” he said.

Ithuba’s CEO Charmaine Mabuza has congratulated the father of two,

“A huge congratulations to our latest PowerBall multi-millionaire. We are excited that we have yet another big jackpot winner this year. Ithuba offers winners of R50 000 and above trauma counselling and extensive financial advice. The advisory services are to help our winners deal with the life-changing moments they experience and to assist our winners with their financial planning,” said Mabuza.
